24 international and local brands open in a new shopping area in Copenhagen Airport

Copenhagen Airport is currently undergoing a major expansion that will enable the airport to welcome up to 40 million yearly passengers. This summer Copenhagen Airport opens a new area in Terminal 2 airside with 4.000 extra square meters along with 24 new shops, restaurants and cafes. The list counts brands such as the first Massimo Dutti in Denmark, the first ARKET store in an airport and urban Copenhagen local brands, with specific appeal to the younger passengers, such as the fashion pioneer Wood Wood and Mikkeller beer.  

Two-thirds of the travelers in Copenhagen Airport are international passengers, and the share of young passengers is growing. The selection of the 24 shops and F&B offerings that will move into the new shopping- and dining area is a wide mix of different Danish and international names, in order to accommodate the needs of the many nationalities and age groups in the airport.

New brands, such as Lacoste, Wolford and Massimo Dutti, will be recognizable for the international passengers, while names such as HUGO, ARKET, Mikkeller and Wood Wood will add to the selection of urban brands that are targeted against the growing segment of younger travelers:

"This is an old dream to come true. For many years we have talked about the opportunity to open a shop in Copenhagen Airport. The Wood Wood-shop will be sort of a satellite store, customized to the airport and the mechanisms, that form the basis for the shopping area. This way, we will create a store that is very different in terms of decors and assortment,” says Karl-Oskar Olsen, Creative Director for Wood Wood.

Making room for more passengers

To strengthen the feeling of being in Copenhagen, several popular restaurant and bar concepts from the Danish capital will move into the airport. Together they will offer passengers from Denmark and abroad a wide selection of food and beverage options. The list counts among others local heroes from down town Copenhagen, such as Tapa del Toro, Gorm’s pizza, the Vietnamese kitchen LêLê along with the popular burger joint Cock’s & Cows.

”We want to ensure that we have a strong selection of healthy and quick meals on the go, as well as offering a range of fashion brands known from down town Copenhagen and the international fashion scene. We are particularly proud that we can give our passengers the opportunity to visit what will be the first of both Mikkeller and ARKET in an airport, as well as the first Massimo Dutti in Denmark. With the opening of Massimo Dutti we are also happy to welcome Inditex to the airport for the first time,” says Lise Ryevad, Director Airport Sales in Copenhagen Airport.

The new area will, besides from a broad range of shops, drink and eateries, create better room for the passengers with light, open spaces and more seats and power outlets. Moreover, there will be established a joint eating area, where passengers can sit together and enjoy a meal from some of the new restaurants and cafés.
